Child Care Council Wins National Award

NAFCC honors Council with Accreditation Facilitation Project of the Year award

Child Care Council Inc.’s work to support child care providers has been recognized with a national award.

The National Association for Family Child Care (NAFCC) recently presented its Accreditation Facilitation Project of the Year award to the Council for its success in helping nine Latino child care providers to earn their Child Development Associate degree and in developing high quality programs that have earned them NAFCC accreditation. The program’s results actually increased the number of accredited family child care providers in Rochester by 900 percent. The program has now been expanded to include family child care providers from throughout our community.

“All of us at Child Care Council are extremely proud to receive this national recognition,” said Barbara-Ann Mattle, Child Care Council CEO. “This award is a testament not only to our talented Latino services team but to all of our Council staff for the work they do, each and every day, to help child care providers expand their education and enhance the quality of their work with young children. It is our hope that it will also encourage other communities to embrace this quality initiative as a path to the top of their state quality rating systems for family child care providers.”

“This award recognizes Child Care Council for the success of this project, but it also highlights the heart displayed by Council leadership and staff to have a positive impact on providers’ lives,” said Dawn Cramer, accreditation operations manager, NAFCC.
